Working on Me... and...

I couldn't go to spin because I was meeting with a parent coach. It was a good decision; I'll see her again next week. I am hopeful.

I came home, changed my clothes and took a 3.5 mile walk with the dog - lots of good hills so I didn't feel guilty for not running. I ate lunch, picked up and headed back outside for yard work. There is NO way I can do it all in one day, so I set some mini goals and pretty much accomplished them and mapped out a few for tomorrow. It's call "eating the elephant a bite at a time". I'm getting a shower in before the kids are out of school so I had to quit for the day.

Eating has been SPOT on!! I feel totally in control and haven't craved anything I'm not supposed to eat. The tween had frozen yogurt (a big weakness of late) and I wasn't interested at all. It's so awesome to feel like this again! I know it's only day 2, but I feel I every day builds my resolve, my confidence and my power to say "no thank you!" I will get back to my "happy weight".

The Dr. called yesterday with no good news about the thyroid and upped my medication. I'll test again in 6 weeks. It explains a lot about why I wasn't losing anything and why I've felt so apathetic, depressed and yawning all the time. I hope things will start heading up all over.

For now, I am still too big - but I'm trying to be nicer to my self. My homework for my next "coaching"session is to track how I feel when stressed and what triggers it. School is done in an hour so I'll be logging my first entry very soon...

Wow, all great news, you are on the right path. What a strong start (even without spin).
